Use Todoist with Twist

If you're working with a team, it can be useful to get updates on your teammates’ progress. That’s where connecting Todoist to Twist can improve the way you work. 

By integrating Todoist with Twist, you'll be able to get updates from a Todoist project in any Twist thread.

An example of how the integration works
  • Let's say your canoe building company, Canoeist, has a Todoist project called Canoeist Blog where you keep track of blog posts. 
  • Canoeist also has a Twist thread called New Blog Posts, where teammates discuss new blog posts.
  • You're planning a new blog post titled Canoe Blog Post, which you add as a Todoist task to the Canoeist Blog project. 
  • This causes a new Twist comment to automatically be created in the Blog Posts thread:

  • Other task updates like task completions will automatically show up in the thread, too. This makes it easy to keep track of what everyone’s working on, directly from Twist. 
Get the most out of your integration by reading some in-depth tips about how to best use Twist with Todoist.
